Consideration for the acquisition is “mainly non-cash” consisting of the assumption of existing bank obligations related to these facilities and the application of a previously paid deposit.

“Argo’s purchase of data centres in Canada represents another milestone for the Company as we seek to take greater control over our mining production and mining cost base, while also laying solid foundations for long-term growth”, Argo chief executive Peter Wall said in a statement.
